Talking About Teaching

DeWitt Wallace Library 309

Jacqueline Schiappa, Mellon Postdoc Fellow, will present “How do you grade a student protest?"  Last spring, a group of students organized an anti-racist action group named Stop White Noise, prompting much debate amongst students on campus.  Perhaps you read about them in the Mac Weekly here, or here, or on the right wing website CampusReform.org.  This presentation recounts the classroom activities that (inadvertently) prompted the creation of Stop White Noise (SWN), what happened throughout SWN's organizing process, how students handled online backlash, and how the instructor navigated assessing a student-led protest.  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
